There is no Kohler, Wisconsin without John Michael Kohler, the man who founded the Kohler empire (a manufacturing company known for their faucets, bathtubs, and more) more than 130 years ago. John Michael Kohler’s son, Walter, erected what is now The American Club as a progressive dormitory of sorts for its factory workers. The village of Kohler sprang up surrounding the Club, designed in partnership by the Olmsted Brothers—the same Frederick Law Olmsted who designed Central Park. As a master-planned community, Kohler boasted ample green space for picnics, concerts, and parades. Today, Kohler is a family-friendly destination, home to luxury accommodations at The American Club and legendary golf courses, a full-service spa, and multiple dining outlets.
One of the most legendary courses in the United States, The Straits at Whistling Straits sits along miles of windswept bluffs on Lake Michigan’s shoreline, boasting fescue fairways and sand dune bunkers. Sister course The Irish is just inland, marked by rolling green hills.
One of only 56 spas in the world to earn the Forbes Five Star Award, Kohler Waters Spa offers a variety of treatments, a relaxation pool, and an enclosed rooftop deck with whirlpool, fireplace, and lounge.
Designed by premier course architect Pete Dye and nestled in a verdant valley carved by glaciers, Blackwolf Run is comprised of two challenging championship courses: The River and The Meadow Valleys.
Part-wilderness preserve, part-dining club, River Wildlife sits along seven miles of the Sheboygan River. Go paddling, fishing, hiking, or picnicking in this unspoiled wilderness.
The eastern coast of Wisconsin enjoys mild, pleasant summers with temperatures peaking in the low 80s. Rolling midwestern thunderstorms are a common occurrence in the warmer months, too; however, they pass quickly. Winters are chilly, with average lows dropping into the teens from December to February.
